himself with it. captioning funded by cbs >>> welcome to "cbs this morning." i'm jeff glor with rebecca jarvis. huge winter storm is making its final stop in the northeast, after causing damage and travel problems coast to coast. >> more than 35 states have felt the power of the storm since it first hit california sunday. it's now blamed for at least 12 deaths, along with the snow it caused more than 40 tornadoes in the deep south, starting on christmas day, and this morning, northern areas of pennsylvania new york and new england have one to two feet of snow on the ground. nearly 500,000 utility customers have lost power. melina shop row is in new york. >> reporter: as the snow continues to fall authorities are urging motorists stay off of the roads. with about a foot of snow already on the ground we're seeing how big and powerful this snowstorm has been. from california to new york the fast-moving storm system that began over the weekend completed its cross-country trek in the northeast, enveloping state after state and heavy snow. >> that's pretty rough. the wet sno

about my good friend, senator jeff bingaman. i think most of the people on his committee feel that he's a good friend. he's been a good friend and mentor to me here in the senate in the years that i've been here, and then also when i arrived in the house we worked with each other. he's been a very good public servant for new mexico and for the united states. and he truly can wear that united states senator proudly. my dad always used to remind me, he used to say -- he said don't forget. you go to represent new mexico, but he says you're a united states senator. and jeff bingaman has worn that title, i think, very, very proudly. jeff is a rare combination of character: brilliant and humble. for jeff, it's about the work. not about his own ego, not about a monument to himself. for three decades in the u.s. senate, he has been making a difference for the american people and for our home state of new mexico. public service is a noble profession when it isn't swamped by money and when it isn't held hostage to partisanship, and jeff is the best example i know of of nobility and politics. by
of the highway patrol in california is a guy named jeff talbott. we believe he's a patriotic american. there he is. in his last year, 'cause he's retired now, jeff collected about a half million dollars in salary. half million dollars. okay? and he retired on $175,000 a year pension. jeff is a police officer. what are you laughing about? you don't think jeff deserves half million? >> god bless jeff. god bless everybody. i mean, the fact -- the season, god bless everybody. but when we have state patrol officers in the state of california walking away with 90% of their highest salary as their pension -- >> bill: they can't pay it. >> there is a reason they call california lala land. >> bill: that's the crux of the matter everywhere. pensions, over time, unions and the folks don't have enough money to pay it. am i oversimplifying it? >> you are simplifying it brilliantly. >> bill: we're sorry to pick on you, jeff. as i said, i believe he's a patriot. probable will he gave his whole career to forgetting the people of california. but 500,000 a year, all right, he gets paid, and then he's walking awa

at the beginning of a senate they adopt the rules and they can by a majority of rules. i want to bring in jeff merkley. senator, good morning. you are not trying to scrap the filibuster. tell me what your goal is in the reforms that you have proposed. >> yes. we're trying to make the filibuster actually work the way it was intended. that is, that folks have to make their case known before their colleagues, before the american public. that they can't simply obstruct, use a filibuster, the silent filibuster we have now to obstruct bills and kill bills in the middle of the night. so clearing the path to the floor enhances debate. getting things to conference committee certainly doesn't subtract from debate and moves the process forward. the talking filibuster says that if you're going to obstruct or say there should be more debate, you have to make your case and the public can weigh in on whether you're a hero or a bum. >> if a cable news viewer has woken up early and they're saying, why am i watching these people talk about how they're going to run their meetings? what are the substantive takes

't tell him that. >> my name is jeff snider and came from east tennessee to be here to ask this question. you were with president obama in iraq in the shoe altercation. i heard that you got hurt during that. is that true and if so what happened? >> it is. i think i deserve recognition for that. [ applause ] they are telling me they have people play it all of the time and show president obama . a press conference in iraq and a terrorist posing as a journalist. now, i am trying to step on it when you see that tall secret service agent that rushes to the president. he was behind me and the inter operator was behind me . the steel arm of the boom mike caught me right here. actually when all of that chaos was happening, i believed it was a distraction for a bomb. that was my thought process and i thought here we g. but thankfully it was not series as all of later on president obama found me and he said, i saw you crying but i thought you were crying because the guy threw a shoe at me . i said, well, i group in wyoming and i am a little tougher than that. and i finished the last six weeks of t
. jeff, moments ago, actually, erskine bowles, they named this the erskine bowles counter offer said in an interview this is kabuki theater. if both sides got an agreement the way that washington is too quickly, their own side would kill them because they wouldn't think they had negotiated hard enough. they have to go through the exchange. we are in the early stages of the dance to take us a little while. >> there is some truth to that. there is posturing on both sides of this. the white house and speaker bane side. there are 29 days left. business world looking for signal from washington, not much time at all. but in washington that is all the time in the world. this comes down to something on the cusp of christmas, christmas eve or new year's eve. there is a risk for both sides off the cliff. some say the burden is on the republicans that come to the deal. but big part of what the president second term is like. what he can do on a variety of other things is shaped by what happens here. there is a significant risk and students for both sides. >> to that point. there are republicans
note and atlantic magazine. steve is also a former policy adviser for new mexico senator jeff bingaman. thank you for being here. >> great to be with you rachel. >> am i being naive to think this was going to pass? >> a lot of people thought it was going to pass. of all the treaties, this would be the easiest to pass. there were other treaties pending. this is about people in need and it didn't. this is a branch of the gop that did you want represent all republicans, but it's the obnoxious nationalist wing that really resents any international deal making. there's a lot of worry not just about people with disabilities, but all the other treaties that position the united states and show that it can be the primary sculptor of global affairs, and we're defecting from that as of today's vote. >> so 126 countries ratifying this, but us, not ratifying it. particularly when it's modeled on our law. that takes us out of a global leadership role? >> it leaves a void that the united states is walking away from the responsibility of primary leadership in the world of sculpting global affairs in t
clear that founder jeff bezos and his notoriously secretive company had bigger plans. they started expanding in the late 1990s into videos, music, games, electronics, kitchenware, clothing, shoes, jewelry, business services, information storage. amazon turned the corner to profitability in 2002, and today, amazon is a $100 billion global company. and though bezos declined our request for an interview, he recently told "fortune" magazine's andy serwer -- >> our goal is to be the most customer obsessed company. is there someone doing some element better than we? if so, how do we improve? >> online shopping is still only 10% of total retail. >> reporter: meaning amazon in all likelihood is just getting started. ben stein told me recently he has never seen a company dominate a market quite the way amazon is right now. this is a huge, huge story this holiday season. the big question, of course, is, what's going to happen to all the jobs that go in the traditional brick and mortar stores? we don't really know. will they go away? will there be more of them? find out more of those answers
santelli always clean shaven is joining us next working on something for a little later on. >> we have jeff carter. we're going to talk about the fiscal cliff but from a much more cynical perspective. he believes that the cbo's call, if we go over the cliff in recession, well, he doesn't believe him. he says there is a keynesian base. what does it mean? he too cynical? i don't know. tune in in about 11 minutes to find out. >>> financials and the fiscal cliff plus the looming february stress tests is the big bank runup of this year finally coming to a close? brad hintz is an equity research analyst and joins us from new york. good to see. good morning. >> thanks for having me. >> new year is going to be fascinating to watch. dodd frank implementation. let's just talk about the rules first. investors know these are coming and why are the stocks trading up in light of what we know is going to be a different kind of year? >> well, one reason that you've seen the runup is a lot of the uncertainty seems to be to be working away. the banks are making the changes to live in this post basal 3 dodd/f
's the important thing to understand. what har ray reid and especially younger senators, people like jeff merkley from oregon, are proposing to restore the filibust filibuster. it's a very simple proposal. they it want to bring back the filibuster as it existed in "mr. smith goes to washington." they want it it to be like jimmy stewart where they had to go to the floor and stand on your principles. now, unfortunately, the filibuster is usually used secretly behind closed doors to stop debate to prevent us from even having a vote. that has nothing to do with what americans understand as a filibuster and there is simply no reason to allow the abuses to continue. >> well, it means that if they were to filibuster, they have to go to the floor and do as you say, "mr. smith goes to washington," and talk endlessly until some conclusion. what do the changes mean for democratic bills, you think? >> it could mean a lot, because many of the bills that democrats have proposed have majority support. they can win in the senate. the problem is they can't get to the 6 o votes that would be required to break a fi
't tell him that. >> dana, i'm jeff snyder and came from east tennessee to be here. >> dana: wow, thanks. >> ask this question. you were with be president bush in iraq during the shoe altercation. i heard that you got hurt during that. ; is that true >> yes. >> tell me what happened. >> it is and i think i deserve a little recognition for that. (laughter) (applaus (applause) >> so, i think we have video from then. they're telling me he now they have the video because people play it all the time and show president bush, what happened was we were at the press conference in iraq and this terrorist posing as a journalist and i kind of stepped on it. when you see the tall secret service agent that rushes to the president, what happened was he was behind me and the interpreter was next to me when he lunged to get the president the steel arm of the boom mic caught me here and hurt so bad and when all that have chaos was happening, i believed it was a distraction for a bomb, just because it was my thought process and i thought, here we go, but thankfully it wasn't as serious as all that and i g

most popular and respected members, senator jeff bingaman of new mexico. when jeff came to this body 30 years ago, he had already led a life of accomplishment created in small-town new mexico, silver city. he was an eagle scout, graduated from harvard college, stanford law school, where he met his future wife, ann. while at stanford, he worked in senator robert f. kennedy's campaign for president. at the age of 35, he was elected new mexico attorney general in 1978. and four years later at the age of 39, elected to the united states senate. during his three decades in this body, jeff bingaman has been a classic workhorse senator as opposed to being a show horse senator. he is truly remarkable and distinctive among senators for his willingness to shun the limelight and share the credit in order to get important things done for his state and for this country. senator bingaman has been a much valued colleague of mine on the health, education, labor and pensions committee, but he has really made his mark in the senate a lasting mark in his role as chair of the energy and natural resources c
is shopping. you just saw the updated numbers that came out this morning. >> well, jeff, yes, i'll concede its most recent quarter was not profitable, but it's been a profitable company. not nearly as much as a lot of folks would see and there's a reason. they have been taking market share and doing it in the cloud. use the cloud streaming services of amazon which is indicative of what an important player amazon is becoming in that field as well. it's an expensive stock. you're paying an astronomical p and still a dominant player in e-commerce and one of the new areas where it's dominant is the iphone this year. >> two companies we've been following very closely this year. thanks for joining us on "talking numbers." see you later. happy holidays. mandy? >> a quick look at what's happening with the markets right now. the do you is just hitting flat with the down side barely moving at this point. of course, we're counting down to the bell. also got aetna's ceo who says his hiring plans for the new year will definitely be affected by the fiscal cliff, and get this, he also says health care costs
schoenberger and also joining us is cnbc's jeff cox. gentlemen, great to have you joining us. do you feel we're further away? >> stepping over dollars to pick up nickels. he has no deal. you're going to see this continued, carried over into monday and even and beyond, further deeper into 2013 because even if there is a deal, you still have to look behind the curtain, the details of it, the spending cuts. how much are we talking about and the fact that the president of the united states is not willing to come to terms? >> do you feel that the president wants to go over? >> look, mandy, this is dysfunction palooza in washington. i've been talking about this since november. they can't get a deal done. they won't get a deal done. the market has been way too complacent. wall street, you were wrong. you were wrong. they are not going to get this deal done. the market is going to sell off chase to start 20 thrown. big >> it will continue to sell off. look, guys. here's the thing though. 25% right now of gdp is government spending. historically that's 20%. if there are going to be the spending cuts,

about raising tax rates on the top 2%. but as for negotiations, i rather like jeff sessions, the senator's suggestion that these are really big issues and very big decisions that should be made by our elected representatives in the senate and in the house. i'm not sure i like this idea that the president and the house majority leader, a republican, get to meet behind closed doors and get to make enormous fiscal decisions just between the two of them. >> do you think more would get done if they did this in front of the cameras? >> i actually think it should be one extreme or the other. they should either lock them behind closed doors until they get something done, let them hash it out, and then come out and announce the deal that we're not going to go over the fiscal cliff, or put everything on television. because i don't think i thought i would ever say this, but i do agree with grover nordqvist that this could give a hint about what each party is doing and who they are protecting. i think the democrats and the president would come out looking good on this, because from the very beginnin
this program. here is what senator jeff sessions told me. >> it's a guaranteed thing. it's an entitlement program. that means if you meet the income qualifications, the government must give you the money. whether the government has any money to give you or not. if they don't they have to borrow it. that's what we're doing. >> reporter: by the way the food stamp program is exempt from sequestration. even if we go over the fiscal cliff those benefits will still be paid out even if lawmakers don't reach a deal. senator sessions did try to pass something in the senate that would have put food stamps on the table for the fiscal cliff negotiations and failed in the senate. jenna: let me ask you that is it part of the fiscal cliff negotiations or are food stamps in their own column right now? >> reporter: he tried. it is considered an entitlement program so it has to be funded. he did try to get the specific measure passed in the senate and it failed. jenna: any response from the administration on this? >> reporter: we reached out to the white house on this and want to give them opportunity to e
the company of loved ones. >> and then, congressman, just after he said that senator jeff sessions of alabama said this, and i shall quote, president obama today gave another speech about the fiscal cliff, no plan, nothing that can be scored or analyzed, just another speech. if president obama wishes to avoid the fiscal cliff then he with all of the power and influence he holds as the leader of this nation must submit to congress in legislative form a plan that he believes can pass both chambers of congress with bipartisan support. no more secret meetings and pointless press conferences. your reaction to both of those? >> yes, i do agree with senator sessions. you know, back room deals, they never work out well. i do commend speaker boehner for allowing the house to work its will and to work by regular order. we have sent all of the bills that the senate needs to address this. the first one went over on may 10th which was reconciliation. august 1st was our tax extenders. the third was on our sequester. and then you finished in september with a path for tax reform. they are all on harry reid's
, chairman jeff miller, fellow floridian, and also the ranking member, mr. filner, mr. michaud, along with senators murray and burr, for moving this legislation through both chambers. i would like to thank also representative braley, the veterans service organizations and higher education associations for providing feedback on ways to improve this bill and their continued support going forward. mr. speaker, i urge passage of house resolution -- house bill 4057 and i yield back the balance of my time. thank you. mr. miller: we reserve the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from maine is recognized. mr. michaud: thank you, mr. speaker. at this time i'd like to yield three minutes to the gentlewoman from texas, ms. jackson lee. ms. jackson lee: i thank mr. michaud very much. i thank him for his leadership on this legislation. i thank the chairman of the veterans committee and the author of the bill, along with mr. michaud, mr. bilirakis, for their leadership. texas competes with many states for the number of returning soldiers from iraq, formerly, and afghanistan
, good morning to you jeff. >> good morning, thanks for having me on. >> i would say so. and it's a little rough on the n.r.a., but if you look at the overall approval rating, they think higher than president obama and higher than the media covering as well. >> dave: maybe the speech from wayne lapierre didn't represent perfectly members of the n.r.a. i know, some weren't happy about maybe the lack of consoling to the victims and maybe some sensible proposal for some sort of reform in this country and maybe that's the problem here is that speech may not exactly represent the n.r.a. members in this country. >> right, now, i think the n.r.a. does have some pr issues to work out, you know and leading up to that press conference, they talked a lot about some major reforms and probably left a little people wondering, probably expecting something a little bit bigger. >> dave: the n.r.a. has millions of members and when you're talking about the mainstream media, it's all in this tiny bubble here in the northeast, has very little representation of most of the people in this country that
